Electric Powered Buddy Boat

June 6, 2012

This waterway cleanup boat is powered by an environmentally friendly electric motor built by Dutch electric motor specialists AEE Marine in Enkhuizen, The Nederlands.

Another innovation was the fold-down wheelhouse ? the headroom on many of the old bridges within the city centre is very low so it was necessary to design a hinged wheelhouse that would give a maximum airdraft of only 1.4m

Water Witch also built and supplied a custom-built road trailer so enable Waternet to move the boat between locations with ease. This trailer was issued with an Individual Approval Certificate by the VOSA scheme, one of the first boat trailers to undertake this procedure in the UK

The Buddy efficiently collect plastics and floating litter by allowing it to float between the hulls into a removable collection basket.
